- The data is converted into usage information – units of energy and price, and CO2 emissions
- This information is made available to you online
- You can then view your bill and usage information online
Online profile of your energy usage

Automated Meter Reading
Investing in Smart Metering with Automated Meter Reading (AMR) Technology provides the benefits of consistently accurate and timely billing, on-line half hourly consumption values, historical customer profiles (daily and monthly) and alternative tariffs not available from the traditional suppliers.
Utilities Savings aims to provide customers with practical advice on how to use their energy more efficiently, in combination with Smart Metering to provide customers with a much greater opportunity to reduce energy usage which in turn will reduce costs and carbon emitted into the atmosphere.
For too long energy suppliers have maintained poor billing standards creating a massive grey area for its customers.
In 2005 Energywatch (now Consumer Direct) submitted a complaint to Ofgem making the case that poor and inaccurate billing represented a market-wide failure to the detriment of customers. This is because the vast majority of complaints received by Energywatch are billing related – late, inaccurate and estimated billing can cause serious financial issues for businesses and homes alike.
It’s a regular occurrence whereby customers are not clear on their energy charges and usage, this can result in overcharging and unexpected costs.
